I pride myself in putting together powerpoints that make difficult topics accessible for all learners, and this is important when teaching students about the difficult concept of cell communication. This powerpoint gives you all the tools you need to keep your students engaged, while allowing you to quickly access their progress through informal assessments. The topics covered are as follows:
1. The five steps of eukaryotic cell communication
2. Quorum sensing
3. Types of proteins channels (ion gated, voltage gated, g protein coupled)
4. Detailed walkthroughs of cell communication, including reception, signal transduction, and response.
5. A modified AP FRQ that will fully assess students' understanding of these concepts.
